Giving thanks - (better late than never...)

Thankful for...

such a fine equine partner. Val's tolerance of my inexperience, impatience and insecurity is apparently boundless. His sweet nature and sense of humor are utterly endearing. I can't say how far we will go in our dressage journey, but I know it will be together. (The other animal companions who share the farmette get a fraction of the airtime that Val does. ♡♡♡ to Q, Seven and Lucky Barnette!)

every inch of my little piece of this fragile, precarious sandbar, where I am slowly but surely, putting down roots. There couldn't be a place better suited to teaching the lesson of living in the moment, where at any time our past and our future may be blown away or washed into the sea...

you - my dear fellow bloggers. You are a steady source of inspiration, support, knowledge and friendship. Thank you for helping to open up the world of horsemanship for me - I am eternally grateful.

not cooking an entire Thanksgiving meal for the first time in decades - went visiting instead. So relaxing... who knew?! ;D

I love reading about your time with Val and how you get along on your island. We should all be thankful for having these wonderful animals in our lives. Glad you got to go visiting instead of cooking!

Not having to cook?...bonus! More time to spend with family and friends. :-)

What a very sweet thing to say, especially including all other bloggers. You are very sweet to make such a post. Your sandbar is lucky to have you, and if Val could talk, he'd say he feels the exact same way (I bet).
